Villarreal B take on UE Cornellà

New, comments

Villarreal are currently in second place, four points ahead of Cornella. This would be a big three points for us.

Villarreal's B team welcomes UE Cornellà to the Sports City in an early Sunday kickoff.  The match will be televised live on Villarreal TV with Toni Alegre providing commentary in Valencian.

Our visitors are currently third in the group standings with 28 points from 16 matches, but their win at home last weekend against Alcoyano was their first victory in seven games.  Villarreal B is on 32 points from 16 matches, but in their last six matches have won all at home, drawn all on the road.  They'd like that pattern to continue for at least one more week!

Our B-boys still have a number of injuries: Dan Ojog, Edgar Ié, Felipe, Pedrito and Ivan Alejo are all out, but Pablo Iñiguez and Miguelón are back form the first team to help out in defense, and Rodri returns in midfield after suspension.

Villarreal C is ALSO in action at home tomorrow, so an enterprising Villarreal fan could catch the B team match at noon Vila-real time, have a paella lunch after that,return at 5:30pm for Villarreal C-Ontinyent, and then have time for a quick beer before the nightcap, Villarreal-Real Madrid at 8:30pm.  Vila-real: the place to be if you love football!
